From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is roasted malty, tartand solid citric to blueberry fruity. Citric and dry finish.

Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear golden color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. This is the second time I have run into a beer with fresh blueberries thrown in (the other being Boston Beer Works), and as far as novelties go BBW has the edge because their blueberries were dancing all over the inside of the glass, while Redondo’s just kind of laid sulkily at the bottom. Aroma of wheat and blueberries. Light body with a bubbly mouthfeel. Sweet fruit and wheat flavors with a bit of malt and sesty spice. The finish is fruity and short. Overall not worth revisiting.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
On draft at brewery, consumed 01/14/08. Light golden yellow, crystal clear (except for the actual blueberries in the beer). Carbonation especially noted due to foreign objects in glass. Aroma is (duh) blueberry. Flavor is laid-back wheat and malt with some smooth berry notes. Towards the end, some corn flavor appears. Not one of the overly-fruity novelty beers most microbreweries produce.

Draft at the brewery / restaurant. There were blueberries in the bottom of the glass and it was nice to eat them while drinking the beer. Otherwise it was like a dry wheat beer.

Pretty tasty; poured a goldish color; lots of carbonation. Put blueberry right into the glass; flavor was a lot of blueberry and wheat; a little yeasty. Enjoyable, but not all that great

Tap @ Brewpub: There’s four blueberries sitting in the bottom of my taster glass... Golden color, light head and lacing. Nose of blueberry, tastes like those cheap instant blueberry pancakes without the buttermilk though. Intense, but unique, somewhat refreshing. I couldn’t drink much of this, because the base beer quickly comes out and shows its ugly self. Nice for the novelty. Unfortunately the blueberries don’t taste that good when you get to the bottom, you’d think they’d be some kind of reward.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Aroma is sweet malt and blueberry puree as well as some perfume. Appearance is golden and a little hazy. Beer has blueberries in the glass. Flavor has some fruity sweetness, a minute amount of citrus and wheat, and some corn. There is not alot of carbonation, and the beer is smooth and easy drinking. This was my favorite of their beers.

Off-white head, hazy amber body, served with blueberries in the glass. Aroma is medium sweet, blueberry. Taste is medium sweet, blueberry (medium strong, not overwhelming). Watery light body, undercarbonated. The blueberry isn’t too much, but not enough flavor beyond it.

Enhanced with fresh blueberries in the glass. Light in body, blueberries take over, sweet and prickley with a touch of spiciness. Of the 3 blueberry ales I've tried so far it's really difficult to see and difference.

Good head! Actually tastes like blueberries. My glass had 10 berries sitting on the bottom. A classy touch. Could be even more berry-flavored, though.
